I had my first Guinness in a while. I forgot how little taste it has.

I LOVE Guinness. When pored well from a good pub there has never been a more complete beer. The cascading is beautiful as the beer settles. It has a full flavor and a really smooth texture. I have tried a lot of other very good porters/stouts, but Guinness is the best.

One of the best beers out there when you get a pint that has been poured correctly. Sadly, you don't get anywhere near the same experience if you buy it bottled and many pubs in the States don't bother to pour it correctly.

There's nothing wrong with a classic. The draw to Guinness is not its complexity or intensity, but it's smooth mouthfeel, it's consistent malt flavor, and the classic-ness of Guinness and it's legacy. Some beers will come and go, but Guinness will always be around, and there's something to be said for that.

By far my favorite beer. Smooth, easy to drink and not filling as a lot of lagers are.

I can't believe this isn't considered the best beer in the world. With a score of 80 around here?

From the can its okay, definitely not the same as draft. But I am no expert (still learning) overall it is still a great beer to have. From Draft is the best, it is one of my favorite beers.
